Testers wanted for kernel/discover1
We have a couple of pretty important bugfixes, which I would like to see
tested as soon (and as much) as possible. Those are:
* Modular IDE in kernel 2.4.27. That change potentially may affect all
sparc machines with IDE controllers, so it would be nice if as many people
as possible would give it a spin and confirm that nothing breaks. For
information see my last message to the bug 298927 . Thanks to Clint
Adams who has already confirmed that it fixes his SB100.
* discover1 fixes for machines with more than one sbus bus. It turns out
that some machines (E-3xxx, E-4xxx, possibly others) have multiple sbus
buses. discover1 only scans the first bus and so fails to load modules for
hardware attached to other buses. There is a patch and updated packages
available, if youhave access to one of such machines, please test them.
More information is in bug 299274 .
Thanks and best regards,
